The Sophisticated Cyber Attacks

The cyber attacks are getting sophisticated each year as they are involving malware, phishing, machine learning, and artificial intelligence which has placed the data of many organizations at constant risk.

As mentioned above phishing attacks have seen a new trend this year as many hackers are taking advantage of the COVID-19 situation and are sending phishing emails to attack many companies.

Ransomware is a non-stop trend, every quarter people witness new threads of ransomware attacks that more complex and sophisticated. It is believed to cost victims millions of dollars every year.

Then there is cyber warfare which intends to rise this year as well. Many governments are investing in cyberattacks to sabotage IoT systems of other countries.

The threat to hospital records and equipment is also on the rise. We constantly get to hear hospital servers getting hijacked.

The protection against cyber attacks is necessary which is why companies like SteneFly, Dell, HPE, and Nutanix have developed simplified variations of backup and disaster recovery appliances.

The most popular appliance from StoneFly includes DR365U that can be integrated with on-premises servers of all kinds. It has enterprise-grade features including AI-powered ransomware protection, data encryption, remote backup in the public and private cloud. It also supports all major hypervisors; KVM, Citrix, Hyper-V, and VMware.

Knowing the depth of the problem and solution will help you make you the right decision. Good Luck!
